Hello soccer fans, we hope you are all enjoying your weekends! Episode 48 of the Yellow Card Podcast is brought to you by Couch Guy Sports and sponsored by Exogun. Transfers, league play and looming continental competitions meant that we had a whole lot to discuss for this one. Tune in now, you’re not going to want to miss it!
To start this episode, Chris, Diego and Andrew discussed the approaching UEFA Champions League group stage draw. The draw takes place on August 26th, and it will determine which teams will be playing one another in the opening stage of the competition proper.
Throwback to the 2019/20 Group Stage draw 😍

To start this segment, the crew went over teams that they think could potentially make up this year’s group of death. Then, we each talked about a few teams we might see in the final nine months from now.
Up next, the boys turned their attention to the English Premier League. We discussed Arsenal’s signing of Martin Ødegaard and the return of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea. The two teams meet in matchweek two, meaning the new players could have an immediate impact against one another.
After that discussion, we took a look at the New England Revolution. There is still a long way to go the postseason, but the team is on fire right now. The Revs are unbeaten in their last eight matches, and currently sit 14 points clear at the top of the Eastern Conference.
To finish the episode, we each shared some final thoughts on random topics from the world of football (how good is Ajax’s new Bob Marley inspired kit?).
